Aftermarket Conical Filter Reccomendations

Post by WhatAmIDoing » Thu May 23, 2019 10:46 pm

I need to replace the filter that is currently on the ram air intake installed by the PO. I'm not a fan of oiled cotton filters and would like to find a cellulose / paper based filter to replace it. Unfortunately, I've been coming up pretty empty. I need a flanged filter with and ID on the flange of 3 inches or 80 mm. Has anyone ever found a paper filter replacement for one of these high flow conical filters?

For the performance modders: what filter do you like or recommend? I'm more concerned with filtration efficiency than air flow.
